The Tale of Tom Kitten (Illustrated) by Beatr..., Amazon

Summary: I bought this Microsoft LifeCam VX-600 Web Camera . It works perfect . I like it very much , it is compact, fits perfect on top of my computer screen or on my computer desk. I do wish the colors would be more vivid and life like . Other than that I like my Microsoft LifeCam VX-600 Web Camera . I recommend this webcam to everyone .
Summary: I read a lot of reviews before I bought this camera. I have VISTA so the software that came with it did not work. I had to go download VISTA compatible software from the Microsoft website. It wasn't as easy as it sounded..... but I'm no techie. Once that was done I skipped all the Microsoft Messenger stuff, turned on Skype and it worked!! I don't have anything against the Messenger, I just did not want to have to learn something new and I like Skype.
Summary: This is a nice camera and works very well with Skype. However, it is wide angle, and claims to have a digital zoom feature. Unfortunately, the digital zoom works only with the Microsoft application and is not part of the basic camera controls, so it cannot be used when the camera is used with Skype.
Summary: Running a Dell Dimension E810 with 1GB RAM, 250GB hard drive with XP Media Center Edition. Update, Live Messenger became a hassle to use. But the camera still works great with Skype and my wife and her family use ours and theirs (same model) weekly or more. We received the camera quickly using the Super Saver Shipping. Physically it is easy to install (plug it in)and is easy to use after the software is installed.
Summary: After nearly giving up on this item while trying to use it on Windows Live Messenger, I decoded a problem that many others seem to have had--the error message "You have another process/camera program running. Turn it off..." I knew I didn't have another camera program running but after three hours of installing and un-installing, I was ready to throw in the towel. My wife opened up the Windows Live "tools" pull down and went to "Audio and video options.
Summary: easy to set up, attaches to laptop or free-standing monitor. good sound and video. worth it for price, only criticism is the automatic follow feature zoooms in and out almost continuously for no apparent reason.
Summary: The VX-6000 is an okay, but not spectacular, performer. The adjustable focus is a plus, but image resolution is nothing to write home about. The wide angle lens is a bit too wide for my liking. The 3x digital zoom is okay, but as with all digital zooms, the image is degraded. The mount for the camera is cleverly designed and can be used in a variety of situations. Software was a problem free install and the control panel offers all the adustments you might want.
